Final Fantasy VI - Ted Woolsey Uncensored Edition

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

Back when Final Fantasy VI (Final Fantasy III US) was released the game was heavily toned down, censoring graphics and the like. When it was re-released for the Playstation, the graphics were uncensored but the toned down script remained. Then came Final Fantasy VI Advance with a mix a match, but the color palette and music were altered for the handheld console. Others made retranslations, such as the great work by RPGOne and Lina Darkstar.

Now this is Final Fantasy VI: Ted Woolsey Uncensored Edition. The goal was to make the SNES version uncut and to clean up the script but keep the nuance used in the original script. Using the original Woolsey script as a base, and by going over line for line looking at the FFVI Advance, RPGOne, and Lina Darkstar scripts, the game’s script is the best of both the past and modern localizations. Also used was various tools and patches to uncensor the graphics, restore Character Class names, extend spell names, rename monsters and items, and make hopefully the version of Final Fantasy VI that everyone will play.

Any bug fixes or additions that were used were chosen not for any balance changes, but to fix persistent issues in the game, as to not change the experience of the original too much. This even includes the long list used in the optional Bug-Fix versions of the game.

Additional Add-Ons are also optionally included. These tweaks bring an overall complete experience that many would say should have been in the original game to begin with.

The Music Player included with the game has been altered for compatibility with Ted Woolsey Uncensored Edition.

Final Fantasy VI Restored

Reviewed By: kaega2 on 25 Feb 2018

Awesome patch. Brings the terminology to the modern Final Fantasy age, corrects censorship, fixes mistranslated lines, but does push the translation to be EXACTLY like the Japanese text.

All bug fixes are included, no need to apply multiple patches. Has some extra modifications that are completely optional.

The only thing I would like to see included, and this is a minor gripe, is the ability to modify your controls like you can do on the original Japanese rom. I don’t think it should be too hard as it looks like the functionality is still in the rom, they just took out the menu item that lets you make the change.

Great work! Thank you so much!
